Gourmet Castle Restaurant serves traditional Chinese food as well as Japanese and Vietnamese cuisines.
I love this place because it's sure to please a group of diners. There are not too many places where you can eat late night to satisfy your crave for either Chinese, Vietnamese or Japanese(ish) food.
It's great for after parties when you need the munchies before heading home to bed.
Not the greatest quality food, but good enough.
I was emerging from the big EB clothing sale at the PNE with Mrs. C, and we were hungry. We spotted this place and decided to give it a try. The restaurant was a little bit dirty, and I also noticed the w/c was quite nasty. They had a rather extensive menu though, so we stuck around and ordered. I had curried beef brisket on rice with gyoza, and my favorite dining companion had a bowl of pho with sliced beef.
The curry tasted okay, although it was a disturbingly bright yellow. The gyoza was very good. As for the pho, it was reported to be too salty. Service was good, and the meal wasn't expensive. We emerged with full bellies, but without any feeling of satisfaction.
I doubt I will return.
Yup.I went back,and was very happy.
The room has been updated,and the food quality is back.
Same with the speedy service.
Im glad they did whatever they did,and now,the Castle can one again be my late night haunt for Chinese.
I had the beef and broccoli,very tasty,as well as the house special chow mein,with soft noodles.
The deep fried squid with salt and pepper is always a favorite!
I live very close to this place, and it always satisfies my craving for BBQ pork fried rice or lettuce wrap. It's not amazing or outsatnding, but it does what I need it to do. This is especially handy for those late-night nosh sessions. The service is usually ok, and I have gotten to know, and have a soft-spot for, these sometimes hard-faced, always hard-working girls. Most work 6 nights a week, late into the night.
Here is another fine East Van Asian diner, the Gourmet Castle! Most interesting because you can get Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean food in one place. I've never had the balls to have the sushi though. Another odd thing is you can get grilled steaks with spaghetti as well, I've never had the cajones to try these either.
This restaurant is your typical get in, feed your gut and get out Asian diner that seems to be on every block in Vancouver. I like the Terriyaki chicken hot plate, the Vietnamese spring rolls and the spicy Wonton. They have been exactly the same for the last 8yrs that I have been eating here.
All in all I recommend the Gourmet Castle and continue to go there myself.
I had went there Saturday and I have always loved there spicy wontons. The waitress was really nice. There prices have gone up slightly since I last went. They have sold it last year and its under new ownership. My spicy wontons are different. If you were used to them from like 2 years ago dont get them. I was so disappointed
renovated, new people, great area - Hastings-Sunrise
havnt been to this place for years, just came back as the pne was open and was craving some chinese.
the food and service has changed, my oh my. If you havnt been here for a while, give it a 2nd chance, trust me.
I'm beginning to think that this restaurant has made it to my list of Chinese restaurant(s). The food is not bad because they have different mixes of Chinese, Japanese and Vietname which I like all. Service is prompt and good, prices are not too shabby. Would probably go to this restaurant since it's close to where i live.
